Six Jenner & Block partners have been named to Lawdragon’s list of the “500 Leading Lawyers in America” for 2011.  The recently published list is the publication’s sixth annual guide to the “best legal talent in the world.”

David J. Bradford, Joseph P. Gromacki, Terri L. Mascherin, Jerold Oshinsky, Paul M. Smith and Anton R. Valukas were selected as among the top lawyers in the country by clients and peers.  

Referring to the 500 attorneys as “influencers,” the publication states, “They’ve changed the law, our society and the businesses and people they counsel.  Each and every one, a hole in one.”

Specifically, Mr. Bradford was recognized for his winning appeal in Ventas; Mr. Gromacki for the “billions in deals for General Dynamics” and representation of GM in its historic $23 billion IPO; Ms. Mascherin for adding to her reputation “as a top commercial litigator” with her pro bono work in the Juan Rivera case; Mr. Oshinsky for his representation of Penn State and his contribution to expanding the Firm’s insurance team with new partners; Mr. Smith for “scoring big in the U.S. Supreme Court in EMA v. Schwarzenegger; and Mr. Valukas for the role the Lehman Examiner’s Report has played in the creation of “sweeping financial reforms following his testimony before the U.S. Senate.”
